The US Congress passed House Resolution 683, authored by Congresswoman Judy Chu, expressing regret for the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act and other similar laws. Here's the Youtube video of Judy Chu in session speaking to HR 683. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Vwd2YIS9wA

This was a strong grass roots effort by many, including CC Yin, Ching-Lin Chen, and many others at APAPA and in the API Community.

Congratulations to all of you for a successful event! I received compliments from many of our guests this evening. I want to thank all of you for working together and making this evening a memorable one for our 2012 scholarship recipients and interns, corporate sponsors, elected officials and community.
Many thanks to the following:
- Amy who coordinated the program timeline and making sure that the evening flowed seamlessly. And through her tireless efforts, challenged the Outreach team to meet the goal of 40 tables.
- Outreach Team for taking on Amy’s challenge of 40 tables and exceeding it. Great job!
- For Henry and fundraising team for getting the raffle prizes and encouraging the next generation of young people to get involved in community service. We raised over $1,300. Awesome job!
- For our photographers John, Danny and Bill who use their talents to capture the moment.
- For Duper who helped the vendor with the stage design.
- Sokie and the many volunteers who helped in the office in preparation for this event into the late hour.
- And most of all, the many new volunteers who came out this evening to help out including our spouses and children. It’s definitely a family affair.
I am blessed to have such a wonderful team who is passionate in serving the community. And most importantly, to CC and Regina for their guidance and support.
Please forward this email to those who help in anyway with this event. I want to thank you them but do not have their email addresses.
